Question about Dryers
Just encountered same problem and discovered burned cord leading to red terminal. Replaced cord and now dryer works. There was significantly burned plastic where cord connection took place. The melted plastic makes me nervous. Hope this will not repeat. Thanks to Byzmom and Amigaman.

Probably has a blown hi-limit fuse. Long dry times are often caused by restricted vent. Clean vent often. When vent is restricted it causes heat to build up in dryer and this blows hi-limit fuse. It's protecting your dryer from a possible fire. Location is dependent on model and gas or electric.
